Clowns Without Borders in Sudan


Published 2006


In November 2006 eight swedish volunteers from Clowns Without Borders went to Africa. Their goal was the war-torn Sudan and the town of Juba in south of Sudan and their mission was to get children and young people to feel hope and vitality with laughter as a tool. At the time, Sudan was the biggest country in Africa and the conflict in the northern Darfur was making millions of the sudanese people refugees in their own country. This is the documentary that was filmed during their three week stay.

The eight volunteers where: Joel Lindh, Samuel Naeslund, Inger Jungehall, Malin Ohrn, John-Henry Larsson, Linda Petersson, Erik Hultby and Thomas Gjerdingen.
